The Houston Rockets are continuing their showdowns with Eastern Conference opponents as they get set to host the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday.

So far so good as Houston beat both Boston and Toronto with ease in their past couple of games. It’s part of their six-game winning streak that started with a win over the Warriors.

They’re averaging 116.3 PPG and allowing 108.8 PPG over that span.

Philadelphia has lost two of their last three including a shocking 108-107 loss to Chicago on Wednesday. They have been without their best player, Joel Embiid for seven straight games and the team is 4-3 in that span. He’s a game-time decision for Friday.

The 76ers are averaging 111.1 and allowing 111.4 PPG in their last seven.

The Bottom Line: Houston is -7 road favorites and the over/under is 232. Houston is firing on all cylinders as their stars are also all healthy for the first time in months. Even if Embiid plays, expect some rust and some issues getting comfortable in a lineup that now also feature Tobias Harris. The Pick: Rockets 115-108.
